What macOS are you on?

I thought you were on Catalina 10.15.2, but Catalina won't run Kindle for Mac 1.23, so if you were able to downgrade, you can't be on Catalina.

Hi,
I don't think it would give you any benefit for kindle eBooks. It would for PDF files. It allows one to read PDF format files in landscape mode, in a rather comfortable way, using and taking advantage of the whole surface of the screen. Otherwise impossible. It's not the case for magazines, only for conventional format Books, in PDF format.I have personally a lot of PDF downloaded files on my PC, since long, that I only could read on the screen of the PC

As an update to this, my previous Mac had to be replaced. Got a new one that was on Catalina. Restored from Time Machine backup.

I had to sign back into an account, so I tried my luck and signed into both of my accounts, downloaded a book from each, converted the books into something else in Calibre.

Success.

I can't say for certain that it'll work for anyone wanting to sign out of their account and signing into a new one. But it does work for me.

Super happy that whatever steps we took to get 1.26.1 working in Catalina transferred over in Time Machine. Maybe that points to a better solution in the future?

That's good news!

Was the Time Machine backup from a Mac running Catalina or an earlier macOS?

Just coming in to say many thanks for this thread - my Kindle for Mac decided to update itself to 1.27.0, and these instructions saved my bacon. I can read Moontangled now!

You need to downgrade to Calibre to 4.5. In 4.6, Calibre changed the name of a library used by the DeDRM tools for KFX.
Does anyone know if this issue has been resolved yet?

I upgraded to Calibre 4.5, but the latest version is 4.10.1.

Looking at github, a fix has been done, but not incorporated into a release.

Just a quick note. This new release is not Python3 compatible. It is version 6.7.0.

It appears to have some work done toward Python 3 compatibility, but only a very small part of what is needed to accomplish that.

It does fix the incompatibility with recent calibre versions and KFX DRM removal.
